This pattern from the mid/late 1970’s was a casual style that really appealed to me, so I scooped it up when I came across it.
I made it from a poly/cotton shirting-weight fabric to try it out.
As you can see from the pattern drawings and pattern pieces, it is fairly shapeless, but somehow seems to work.
|Hanger appeal isn’t one of it’s main attractions!|
It has a neat drawstring in each of the shoulder seams, that you can adjust to how you like it to sit. I mostly wear this one with it as you see below, sitting just past my shoulder.
It has quite a wide facing right around the back and front neckline, which was a bit floppy and annoying, so I top stitched it down all the way around. This has the added bonus of giving the front neckline and opening a bit more structure.
I do plan to make this again in a more drapey fabric in the future, as it is incredibly comfy, and very easy to throw on and go.
Sidenote: As a way to try out Instagram, I will be sharing a pattern a day from my Classic pattern stash. You can find me here.
